British Airways predicts good year for St. Kitts, St. Lucia

SUN St.Kitts & Nevis: "CASTRIES, St. Lucia (CMC) – The Caribbean’s tourism industry did relatively well last year despite a slowdown in the global economy and two emerging markets in the region can look forward to growth in 2009, a senior airline executive has said.

Richard Tams, head of UK and Ireland Sales at British Airways, identified St. Lucia and St. Kitts as two leading long haul destinations for British travellers and predicted that arrivals to those countries should increase this year.

“It’s not all doom and gloom for travel in the current economic climate, as destinations such as Dubai and the Caribbean islands of St. Kitts and St. Lucia continue to experience growth and investment, so we anticipate greater numbers of customers wanting to travel there,” he said."
